Re: How many women here own their own boat?

If the definition is that because I am married our boat is considered community property and in any type of divorce settlement therefore it is considered split ownership, no one who is married is the primary owner of their boat.

If you bought the boat before you were married you may have somehwat of a case but not after 7 years of marrige in MD.

If there is someother definition I guess my wife owns our boat. Just as I do.

I think the answer for this question is for sole ownership.....therefore you arent married.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Primary owner and settlement in a divorce are two different things. If your spouse is not on the title, they are not an owner. They may be entitled to something else equivalent to half its value, if you stop getting along.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

This is true in Virginia, too. A spouse's potential equitable distribution rights in all marital property does not create specific title rights.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Drifting off topic into meaningless waters. My wife owns all kinds of stuff that is clearly hers and not mine.

Are you arguing that I own 50% of her bras? You are "all wet"!

My mother has passed on, but she without a doubt owned the sailboats in my family. She grew up on sailboats and loved them to the end. My dad supported her in every way. He was more of a fisherman than a sailor. My mom was really in charge when we were sailing. When we were out of sight of land or in fog, I had total confidence in her ability. Wish I could do it all again and pay attention to what she was trying to teach me.

"Primary ownership" (OP) is not the same as "sole ownership". Interesting that the word "ship" is in the word ownership!

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Julie,
Perhaps you could re-phrase the question;
How many women are single and own their boat, or
(not getting into the gay/partner discussion)
How many women are the sole owner of their boat regardless of partnership status etc..

I do not consider our sailboat MINE, the title says Chuck and Mary, not Chuck or Mary. The only thing I own on the boat is my assigned maintenance. When I say Mary is the Admiral I mean it in the classical sense, She tells me where to go and I help her get it there.

Chuckles...I like how you put it...I agree.

Lets ask the OP to clarify. Julie what were you asking when you said " how many women own their own boat?"

BTW, I'm not yet but I'm looking.

While I am married, "our" boat is clearly my wife's. We had another boat that was "mine" at the time we married but she didn't care for it all that much. (It didn't have two heads for starters, and when a woman's gotta go, she's gotta go NOW!) So, in a moment of weakness after one too many glasses of wine, I consented that if she could find a certain boat, she could buy it, assuming of course that she could not. She did, and did. I know the boat is hers as once it was relocated to Florida, she asked me when I could get "my" boat out of "our" slip so she could "park her boat" at "our" club. Needing 3 boats like a hole in the head, I finally sold my boat (we still have "her boat" and a little 12' sailing dinghy that my daughter informs me is "her boat"). When one of our lady slip neighbor's asked her how she could sit in the cockpit and read while I was working on the brightwork she responded "I'm management, he's labor". So it must be her boat, no?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Like cats, I always thought boats owned you.
For years may wife called it 'Your" boat,with a distinctly disapproving tone. I was overjoyed when she began referring to the new boat as "our" boat. When she began to complain about how dirty I left her galley, well I can die happy!

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Our dock neighbour owns her own C&C Northeast 39, she did the Pacific circuit several years ago, and now continues to cruise the boat, usually with pickup crew so she's often virtually singlehanding.

She was also the first female graduate from the Royal Military College in Ontario. Quite the gal....
